This paper outlines the beginnings and sources for Jung's new approach to psychology. The author finds that Jung's childhood experiences and the things he saw around him everyday, greatly influenced his approach to psychology. The author believes that eventually Jung saw people no longer as individuals but as a collective group who shared the same unconscious and primitive ideas. This paper looks at Jung's dreams and his idea of archetypes and explains how he found support for these in other religions from the past.

From the Paper:

"Man is not an isolated figure, but lives in a world that has many facets. Being constantly immersed in a specific culture and environment is bound to affect any field of study in which one is engaged. This is true for Carl Jung and his analytic personality psychology. Throughout his life, Jung was greatly affected by many events and incidents. He strived to make sense of them in an organized manner, but it was not until later in life that he was able to fully understand the true meaning of these events. Jung brought to his work and theories personal experiences, familial relations experiences, as well as the cultural-historical ideas of his time that, combined would give Jung the foundation he needed to create his great psychological theory."
